We’ve owned my wife’s Aero Bote for a couple of years now. While we appreciated the workout, I decided that because we aren’t as young as we once were, it would be better to save our energy for paddling. I’ve been thinking about this for a while and pulled the trigger as a Christmas gift for this year. Looking forward to less pre-paddle sweating in the new year! Will follow up with a detailed review once paddling season starts.
Pumped up one board by hand and used the aero pump for the second board. I will be using the aero pump every time now. Used the 12v port in the back of my vehicle and it took 16min to 15psi, during that time I secured all screw in attachments and rigged for fishing. Would highly recommend.
I’ve been manually inflating my BOTE inflatables for a few years. My arms have reached maximum size so it was time to give them a rest. The air pump was a great purchase, it inflated a 11’ board in about 10m with an automatic shutoff so no worries of over inflation. You won’t regret it.
I immediately ordered this after using the included manual pump to inflate our new 10’ bote dock. It was exhausting. The electric **** is the way to go. Only wish they’d included a power plug too. You have to plug it in to your cigarette lighter in your car or your car battery to power it.
Living in Arizona, it gets hot outside in July! Having to spend 10-15 minutes sweating with the hand pump is no way to start a fun day on the lake. The AeroPump is "set it and forget it". While I was out on the board, a woman pulled up with her inflatable and hand pump. My wife offered the use of our AeroPump. She accepted and was a convert!!
